Welcome to the home of Oxford University Swimming Club

Founded in 1892 and based at the Rosenblatt Pool on Iffley Road, Oxford University Swimming Club (OUSC) is the university’s competitive swimming team. Swimming is one of the few Full Blue sports at Oxford and so has a prestigious status in the sporting scene. OUSC is made up of two teams, the Blues and the Seconds, both of whom compete against Cambridge in the annual Varsity Match. The 2024 match will mark the 132nd anniversary of the event.

Both teams also compete at national BUCS competitions, with a number of our swimmers competing at the highest levels of the sport, making BUCS and national championship finals. The club also has a vibrant social scene with weekly events, ensuring that everyone feels welcome.

You can find out more about the team on the About OUSC page. If you’re new to Oxford and interested in joining the team, please check out the Freshers page and sign up for the team trials held at the end of Fresher’s week. If you have any more questions about the club, please feel free to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
